Analyst: iPhone 8 Release Likely Delayed Until End of October or Later

Posted September 8, 2017 at 5:33pm by iClarified
A new report claims that the iPhone 8 Edition release will likely be delayed until late October or even later.

Rosenblatt analyst Jun Zhang claims that Apple is currently having some issues with the metal frame of the iPhone 8. They still expect the iPhone 8 will be announced on September 12 but 'the official launch will likely be delayed to late-October or later'.

Apple's component suppliers are not expected to feel an impact as the company is continuing to pull in components as scheduled. However, the delay is said to give Samsung's Note 8 and Huawei's Mate 10 more time to take in market share.

The report corroborates another from Macotakara who also claimed the iPhone 8 Edition would not ship until October.

I've got no problem with Apple delaying the iPhone 8 until it's flawless, it's much better having a reliable device, than a rushed product begging to be returned.
